Golden God

Robert Plant may not be joining Led Zeppelin on a new album and tour but I've got to admit - the man has consistently pushed the envelope with his music since 1982. Instead of becoming a vegas act like much of his contemporaries, the Commander of the Order of the British Empire Himself stays true to his blues roots while surrounding himself with musicians who nurture his non-Western musical interests. Him and Alison Krauss just cleaned up at the Grammy's with their duet album.
It just shows to go ya that even a Brit with an obsession with middle eastern music can conjure up more vivid Americana imagery than most yank musicians.
